Secrets on the Sand by Roxanne St.Claire (Audio Edition) Narrated by Kaleo Griffiths The Billionaires of Barefoot Bay #1
♥ ♥ ♥ ½ Thi..Show More »s was a super quick read as it was a novella. The story was a feel good romance and I loved the plot of the hero getting his high school crush in the end. Mandy had a couple flighty moments which didn't make sense to me, and I sorta wished she’d secretly crushed on Zeke back in the day - but that's just me.
Zeke knew what he wanted and had the money to use that to his advantage. He seemed like a caring man and I felt he truly wanted Mandy, I just wish I had felt a bit more chemistry between them.
This is the first time I have heard a Kaleo Griffith's narration and while I like the tone of his voice and his clarity, I found he was quite breathy as if every conversation whispered - though perhaps that was the story as well.. it was very “hush hush” in parts. I would listen to another of his narrations.
Another good story. I Loved Elliot and Frankie, and I loved all her goats and dogs. The animals made the story much more fun.
It was about El..Show More »liot wanting to buy her land and her not wanting to sell and all they went through to find out the land wasn’t all that important. It was funny to read how this billionaire insisted on staying on her farm and sleeping in the barn, then on her couch in her double-wide trailer. And all the really great names he came up with for her goat-milk soaps. And, Of course, how Elliot screwed up their relationship and had to do some groveling when he realized how much he loved her.
It was nice to see Zeke and Nate again. And Nate’s story is the next one I’m going to read. I know a lot of you are tired of billionaire stories but I’m not. They aren’t a part of my world so that’s why I like them.
There is explicit sexual things that go on with this book, so if you don’t like “explicit” then this book is not for you. And the F-bomb is used 2 times.
As to the narrator: Kaleo Griffith was great once again. His men and women sounded terrific and Elliot was always whispering in Frankie’s ear and Kaleo did exactly that. Sounding as sexy as heck. Awesome job.
I think this might have been my favorite of the 3 books in this series. Maybe because there seemed to be a little more drama to it: the question of wh..Show More »o Dylan’s father was, Nate or Jeff Munson, and the fight Nate and Jeff had. The question of who Bailey/Carrie really was and the snooping Nate and Liza had to do to find out. Together they took his yacht from Barefoot Bay to Key West to look into the background of Bailey because Liza believed she was a sweet girl and Nate just knew Bailey was a liar. Yeah, it had a little more to it than the other two books.
I liked Nate a little more than Zeke and Elliot, too. He was trying to get away from his Naughty Nate reputation but it was so difficult for him, so hard for others to believe. Until he met Liza.
I did adore Dylan (he was 4) and his constant spelling but I saw no reason for the author to write about him having a temper tantrum. She makes him a great kid one minute then a total brat. What was the point in that?
There was plenty of sexual tension in these 3 books, which made them much better, rather than just plopping a sex scene into a story because the publishers tell them that sex sells. And there was explicit sexual things that went on, on top of his desk, that was plenty hot. And there was swearing and the F-bomb was used 2 times.
As to the narrator: Kaleo Griffith was just as good in this book as he was in the other two stories. His voices were awesome and his whispering would give any woman goose bumps.
